Overcome Your Skydiving Fears and Take the Plunge

Hey Friends, Before I start my discussion with you let me first introduce with -

I had great positive experience with them. "Gold Coast Skydivers' staff is the best of the best at what they do. I cannot recommend them and their establishment enough. Very friendly and it is a uniquely amazing adventure that everyone should experience at least once in their life and Gold Coast should be where you experience it!"

Since April 1993, Gold Coast Skydivers has been in operation, they are the only skydiving facility in Mississippi, and are a day trip away for those

in New Orleans, Slidell, Hammond, and Baton Rouge.

They have the largest and fastest airplane in the South. Whether you are a newbie or an expert,
you want you to come experience their dropzone!

I also joined them at -

So if you're wondering how you can overcome your skydiving fears and take the plunge, these tips may help you:

• You do need to determine if it is sky diving that you're afraid of or if it is a fear of heights. You may even have a fear of flying. You should identify the exact fear so that you can face it and totally overcome it. You have to break all boundaries to get rid of your fears.

• Have a friend or family member do the jump with you. It is always more comfortable to take on such activities in pairs or groups rather than alone. You need a support group.

• If there are several sky diving centers in your area, call them all and ask them questions. Ask them what procedures they use, their accident record, and any other questions you want to ask them. Don't worry about a question being ridiculous because you want to feel as secure as possible when making the dive. Choose the company whose answers make you feel the most comfortable.

• Jump in tandem with your instructor. This is required when you are a first timer, but you can do tandem skydiving as often as you need to so that you can bring yourself to jumping solo. Keep in mind that you will have a lot of freedom when you jump solo. You may even get to do some somersaults, dive, and simply have a good time.

Some teachers could let you do your first jump all alone if you want. Usually you can make your first jump after 5 to 6 hours of ground training.

You can do your ground training and your first jump in the same day.

You should never wear clothes that will limit your moves, sandals or open toed shoes. You should always wear clothes you best feel in and

running shoes. You can also bring with you glasses or contacts, the goggles you will be provided with, will fit over with no problem. Your

skydiving jump will consist of 30 seconds of free fall and 30 second to land.

Most people feel the free falling like a great flying experience.
